It was the early 1950s when Silvio Carta founded the eponymous company in Baratili San Pietro, immediately devoting himself to the most traditional of the local wine productions: Vernaccia di Oristano. An amber gold that embodies nobility and generosity, which immediately charms and conquers the palate.
The skilful vinification, the long resting in a barrel and the careful and loving care by the Maison Silvio Carta have made this incredible wine an authentic glory of Sardinian oenology.
Sixty years have passed since then, but Vernaccia still remains a family matter. But now there is more. After more than half a century, Silvio, together with his son Elio – the latter at the head since 1972 – still devote themselves to the production of the greater Vernaccia di Oristano DOC. However, thanks to a careful look towards innovation and the loving care of very deep passions, today the Silvio Carta company is also synonymous with Mirto ‘riserva’, London Dry Gin, Vermouth and other typical spirits distributed all over the world as precious examples of an ancient and luxuriant land: today, the world smells of juniper, myrtle and citrus fruits from Sardinia thanks to the excellence of Silvio Carta.
Full and enveloping, persistent taste. In the mouth, when tasted it causes an explosion of fresh and bitter notes of the Sardinian Mediterranean scrub. It recalls aromas and scents. The wild nature is perfectly balanced by the bitter-sweet taste of strawberry tree honey, the finish is decidedly balsamic. In the mouth they persist on all hypericum and mugwort.
The explosive and perfectly balanced blend that makes up Bomba Carta is given by the following botanicals found in the company’s botanical garden: santolina, hypericum, helichrysum, thyme, mugwort. With the addition of an extraordinary ingredient, strawberry tree honey. A bitter, rare and authentically Sardinian honey. A unique product.
“We have chosen to cover the bottle of this amaro with a paper reminiscent of Molotov, the homemade bombs, because Bomba Carta has an explosive force. An authentically Sardinian taste that speaks to the world”.
